Wine storage and display racks are essential to cellaring wines. They are designed to hold wine bottles on their in such a way as to allow the cork to stay in constant contact with the wine. Keeping the cork moist prevents it from drying out and ensures its sealing quality. Wine racks can be found in different sizes and styles, and come in a range of storage options.
The most sought after material in wine rack construction is wood, because of its exceptional workability and availability. Wooden wine racks are the preferred racking option of most wine connoisseurs, because they come in a variety of color and finish options that can complement any design preference.

Of all the wood species used in manufacturing wood wine racks, mahogany is a cut above the rest, because of its enduring quality and aesthetic features. Mahogany lumber has beautiful grain patterns that absorb and deflect light, giving it an attractive warm glow when stained. This wood variety is also naturally resistant to rot, decay and infestation. These properties make Mahogany wine racks an ideal storage solution in cellaring wines.
Mahogany is a tropical hardwood that is known for its reddish brown color. There are three species of the mahogany tree, and all of them originate in the regions of Latin America. There is the Swietenia macrophylla, which can be found in Colombia, Brazil, and Belize; the Swietenia mahagoni which is indigenous to southern Florida and the Caribbean; and the Swietenia humilis, which is native to the dry forests of Pacific Central America.
One of mahogany’s best features is its fine and even grain patterns, that are almost completely devoid of cavities and pockets. Mahogany has a natural reddish brown shade that deepens over time. Due to its workable nature, it is the material of choice for most woodworkers. This wood variety also has the ability to take stains and finishes exceptionally well.

Mahogany racks that feature a 15 degree display row are perfect for highlighting the best wine labels in one’s collection.
